Street Closures - 12th Street and Freeman Road
On 12th Street E., there will be widening and improvements to the street between 46th St. E. and 54th Ave. E. during the week of August 21st. Installation of a 6-ft diameter culvert to carry the Fife Ditch under 12th St., in line with 52nd Ave. E. In order to install this large culvert, and to complete other work in the ROW, 12 St. will be closed between 46th Ave. E. and 54th Ave. E., except for local access, between 46th and 54th Ave. E.
(Please note, plans to pave this segment of 12th St. E. on August 28, and to open the street to traffic before Labor Day weekend).
On Freeman Road East, work to smooth curves and grades and to widen and improve the road between 20th and 26th Streets East. Scotty’s has fallen behind schedule as it has taken longer than expected to convert overhead utilities to underground. While Scotty’s had previously announced that they planned to reopen the street to public traffic before Labor Day, they now anticipate reopening in mid-September
. Note that both streets are likely to be closed for a period after paving and before opening for traffic. We anticipate calls from the public during this time, as they will see the pavement and be anxious to use the new streets.
The time between paving and opening will be used by both contractors to raise castings, install illumination, street trees, and pavement markings, and otherwise prepare the streets for traffic. This period is expected to last for several days for 12th Street East and over a week for Freeman Road East. The Freeman road segment will take longer because, in addition to the features that it shares with 12th Street, guard rail will also be installed along a portion of Freeman Road after paving and before opening.
August 22nd paving on 114th Ave E between Jovita and 8th St traveling in the north and south bound lanes will cause delays as a lane will be closed. Expect delays and use alternative routes.
Gas Main Construction
August 21st Puget Sound Energy will be starting the construction of a 4" gas main along the intersection of 108th/36th Street E. and head west towards Meridian. They will then begin working south with a single lane daytime closure placing their gas main along the east side of Meridian until they get to 36th Street. From 36th Street, they will head east down towards 108th Street, terminating in the intersection, with single lane closures until this installation is complete.
Nicklaus Subdivision Sewer Main
The Nicklaus Subdivision will beginning boring a new sewer main to serve (2305 94th Avenue Court) along 24th Street. This will begin at the last manhole installed in front of the Northwood Estates project, heading west. This work will occur during the day and will involve a single lane closure. This process was chosen instead of open cutting the roadway which would require a full roadway closure or night closures, as the sewer along here is deep and would jeopardize the integrity of the City's roadway. Work here is slated to begin the week of September 5th, with single lane closures during the day and a fully open roadway during the evening.
